in thread problems installing PAR::Packer (pp) on Windows 7

There's no 64bit MinGW available from Active State: Another reason why Strawberry Perl (reason being it comes with all this and more as standard) is the perl I choose for Windows.

    hi marto, i had switched to strawberry perl as default, i'm very pleased with it.
    But me too i'm haveing trouble with the pp: PAR::Packer was installed only with the force install command and pp too.
    Then pp result as not properly run anyway.
    I found some article but i'm not sure if there is a solution.

    I'll post here any progress.


    there are no rules, there are no thumbs..

      Strange, I run Strawberry Perl and had no problems installing pp or running the generated packages. Perhaps more details would help.

        Hello there!
        i have some done some test with this scenario: strawberry-perl- win7 64 bit with the important side note that with strawberry i started the prompt via portableshell.bat which assure you that strawberry bin are put before other things in your path within env.

        I also found this page that describe a solution for the 64bit version and a possible solution for the 32 bit of strawberry (changing a winres parameter): this approch (which full understanding is beyond my actual knoweledge) failed for my scenario.

        the direct install via cpan> install Par::Packer failed many tets and the installation too

        cpan> reports RSCHUPP/PAR-Packer-1.014.tar.gz reports many fails and unknows too..

        Success! succes in the installation is arrived with this commands:
        cpan> look PAR::Packer H:\straw5.16\cpan\build\PAR-Packer-1.014-lqy0Qe>perl Makefile.PL dmake -f Makefile install
        Now i have pp running normally!

        there are no rules, there are no thumbs..

      I am trying to install using strawberry perl, no success so far. Here is the message I get:

      pl2bat.bat blib\script\ Can't execute /cygdrive/c/strawberry/perl/bin/pl2bat.bat. dmake.exe: Error code 129, while making 'blib\script\'

      I am running this in the standard shell, not in cygwin, so I don't get where /cygdrive comes from.

        Most likely your environment contains Cygwin tools somewhere in $ENV{PATH}. Eliminate these.
